RFID Drives Automation of Asset Management

Gain visibility into every corner of your operations.

Radio frequency identification (RFID) technology automates tracking and visibility of assets and inventory across a wide range of industries and organizations—from manufacturing and distribution to retail and healthcare. By automating visibility, organizations can more effectively manage and optimize their critical assets, streamline operations, and create more efficient workflows.

Advantage RFID



  • Line of sight is not required; tags can be captured anywhere within range of a reader
  • High throughput with the ability to read multiple tags at once
  • Tag visibility or orientation does not matter
  • Tags scanned automatically with no manual intervention
  • Data can be updated on the fl
  • Highly secure; data can be password protected and encrypted



Barcode tag
  • Traditional barcodes must be passed within the fixed range of the scanner
  • Low throughput with only one barcode read at a time
  • Barcode must be visible and properly oriented
  • Usually requires manual scanning
  • Read-only capability
  • Low level of security; easy to reproduce
